Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery: This special edition is a full bodied and distinctive strong beer developed within the abbey to celebrate and honour the 150th anniversary of the brewery. Produced with 100% natural ingredients,its pale golden robe and champagne sparkle is topped by a rich white head of foam. The distinctive bouquet evokes the rich fruity and complex notes of the Chimay yeast in harmony with a delicate spicy note and the fragrance of fresh noble hops. At 10% alcohol, the flavour is full bodied and complex with a slight but refreshing tang note and a crisp hop finish that will delight the palate.

Oooh! Special and Chimay! Two of my favorite words. :) Lots of carbonation, it pours a pale straw color with a very active white head. The smell has more pronounced citrus than any Chimay I've had before. Oranges and sugar and lemons. I think that's what someone is made of but I've drank since then. The taste is UNBELIEVABLE! Oranges, biscuits, a little pepper, a little caramel, a hint of wood. It's like a rustic grocery store in a bottle. Mouthfeel is tingly and slick. Like me after I've finished this. Wow. Truly stupendous, the best Chimay I've had.

A-darker shade of gold. quite bubbly. very nice stable white head.

S-very aromatic from the time the cork is popped. you'll know this is being served if you're in the area. really strong scent of pale belgian spices, grains, and hops. smells like a super strong (not ABV-wise) and super raw tripel. smells awesome.

T-comes in with an amazing taste of pale belgian malts. good amount of hops, warm salty caramel, spices, and banana...and best of all...rawness. the after-taste is matching with a bit more warmth and bitterness.

M-high carbonation with a creamy finish

O-Surprisingly my new favorite Chimay. it's awesome. it's got to be one of the best Belgians I've ever tasted. It's your stereotypical pale Belgian except with increased boldness and a great amount of rawness. hits quickly. might be difficult not to go and buy another bottle, even though it's quite pricey.
